The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Langdale Nursing Home is based on 60 Review/Recommendations in the last 2 years. This Review Score of 9.702 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.702 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 5 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the number of positive Reviews/Recommendations.

  • The maximum Review Score for a care home / service is 10 and it is based on the published (including Restricted Publication) Reviews in the last 2 years. When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

    The Review Score of 9.702 for Langdale Nursing Home is based on 60 Reviews/Recommendations in the last 2 years.

  • The Review Score (maximum of 10) is made up of a Quality Score (maximum of 5) and Quantity Score (maximum of 5):

    • Quality Score: 5 Points are available for the average rating. For each review the care home / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The care home / service receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating. (Please note that the ratings of Very Poor and Poor have only been available since the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015.)

      The Quality Score (average rating) of 4.702 for Langdale Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (508 Excellents x 5) + (175 Goods x 4) + (15 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 699 Ratings = 4.702

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a care home / service. A Positive Review is defined as:

      • Any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this care provider to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

      • Any Recommendation. Before the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015 all feedback was limited to Recommendations (ie positive comments only)

      The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

      1. 3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.

      2. 0.1 Point per Positive Review, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. (ie a care home / service requires 10 Positive Reviews to receive the maximum score of 1 point.)

      3. (Number of Positive Reviews ÷ number of registered beds) x 2, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. ie a care home / service has to receive a number of Positive Reviews equal to half of the number of registered beds to obtain the maximum score of 1 point. eg a care home / service with 40 registered beds has to receive 20 Positive Reviews to obtain the maximum score of 1 point.

        (For Adult Day Care Centres and Extra Care Housing which do not have a registered number of beds, 1) and 2) are replaced by the formula of 0.2 points per Review, up to a maximum score of 2 points. ie a listing needs 10 Reviews to receive the maximum score of 2 points

      The Quantity Score of 5 for Langdale Nursing Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 60 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 60 Positive Reviews = 6.000 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (60 Positive Reviews ÷ 39 Registered Beds) x 2 = 3.077 (maximum score = 1)

  • The Review Score is based on user Recommendations/Reviews submitted in the last 2 years. The maximum Review Score is 10. There are 5 Points available for the average of all ratings on users Recommendations/Reviews (Excellent 5, Good 4, Satisfactory 3, Poor 2, Very Poor 1). There are 5 Points available for the total number of positive Recommendations/Reviews submitted in relation to the number of beds at the Care Home.

  • Before 1st July 2015 carehome.co.uk only accepted Recommendations (positive comments only) and the Ratings were limited to Excellent, Good & Satisfactory. These are marked up as Recommendations.

  • As of 1st July 2015 carehome.co.uk changed from Recommendations to Reviews (positive and negative comments) and added the Ratings Poor and Very Poor. These are marked up as Reviews. Between 1st July and 31st December 2015, we are still processing a number of Recommendations from Recommendation cards sent out before 1st July (These are marked up as Recommendations).

Mum has been at Langdale for nearly 2 years now. She has been treated with love and dignity from day one. I cannot praise the staff enough. The activities at Langdale are really good and in the summer months there are beautiful gardens for the residents to enjoy.

Because I am younger, I prefer activities on a one to one basis our garden therapists supports me with board games and computer, I would like Wifi in my room but I can get it in the lounge. The garden therapist takes me shopping when I need clothes or shopping and recently he too me to the cinema and that was very nice. I like my food and Langdale has made every effort to facilitate me changing meal times to suit me when I have visitors. I would like more privacy I do not like staff contributing to my conversations with relatives but I do not mind them listening, my visitors are here to see my not them. My rooms is good as it allows me to move freely on my disability scooter. I have had several concerns which have been dealt with by the management punctually.

Following a major stroke my husband spent the last 2 years of his life at Langdale. He was happy there and I cannot fault the care and attention given to him. The end of life care given to him in his final days was excellent, their care extended to the family too, welcoming us at anytime of day or night, and supporting us through the difficult times. Nothing is too much trouble for them, and the rooms and gardens are maintained to the highest standard. I have no hesitation in recommending Langdale to anyone.

Langdale Nursing Home is a very warm and friendly home. All the staff are very caring and considerate, nothing is too much trouble and they always find time to chat if you have any concerns of your loved ones. Everyone is made to feel welcome. When weather permits they have BBQ's and tea parties in the gardens which are enjoyed by the residents, their families and friends. I cannot speak highly enough of Langdale Nursing Home.

Finding a good care home in which you trust to place your relative is a very stressful experience. Thankfully Langdale Nursing Home is a care home in which I have the utmost faith and know that the care they give my dad is excellent. My dad is very happy and content at Langdale Nursing Home. He is well looked after, fed wonderful wholesome food, always clean. There is entertainment and activities for him to join in with if he so wishes. Residents are treated with respect and dignity and the staff are very caring, both medically and pastorally. The ambience is one of a large family, not of a clinical institution. Visitors are always made to feel welcome and included. I would highly recommend Langdale Nursing Home.

A welcoming and very friendly nursing home. All staff look after residents/patients in a professional manner, treating them with dignity and understanding. The whole building is thoroughly cleaned every day and smells clean. The food is cooked on site, it smells, looks and tastes delicious with widely varied daily food served in rooms or in common rooms. Residents look as though they are well cared for. There are daily activities and brought in entertainment from time to time. The gardens are lovely and well looked after. Residents are safe and monitored. Visitors always welcomed with a smile, a chat and given support when needed. This nursing home is clearly very well managed with all of the priorities in the right place. Overall keep up the good work, well done.

I've been in respite for a short amount of time, Langdale I feel is the best care home I have come across. All of the staff are very helpful and caring. The care home itself is a very nice environment, the activities here are very relaxing. In my opinion it doesn't need any improvements.

It's always a very welcoming visit when my wife and I go in. The staff are always very busy but at the same time very caring and enjoy what they do. My father-in-law is a lot happier there and is looked after very well. He joins in with all their activities that go on, which keeps him active mentally as well as physically.

My husband uses Langdale for respite breaks for me. He is bed bound (massive stroke) and cannot speak a single word. The staff are very very nice and caring - but nice to each other (which we do not always have in domiciliary care). The same staff have been there for a long time which proves management are getting it right (again not like domiciliary). Room and home is very clean, I cannot fault it in any way.

I have been visiting Langdale for over 10 years on behalf of the local Parish Church for the last 3-4 years. I have noticed a marked growth in the empathetic care for the residents. There is a high ratio of staff to residents and emphasis on mental stimuli for those capable of enjoying it.
In summer they are encouraged to sit in the garden in a shaded spot where simple games are played. Recently, this month, I have witnessed the gentleness and tenderness of patients in the final stage of life. The ratio of staff to patients is very good and the whole home is immaculately clean.

Mum was here in 2013 and was very happy, thinking she was in a hotel. She was cared for very well and when Dad visited, they treated him very well too. So when it was time for him to go into a home, Langdale was our first choice, he is very happy and content, therefore we are happy too.

My brother has been cared for at Langdale for over 22 years. He is quite happy there and is well looked after. The nursing staff have always acted promptly when a health issue has arisen, and I cannot praise them enough, be they nursing, care, kitchen and domestic staff. Always cheerful and helpful.

Since being accepted by Langdale Nursing Home approx. 6 years ago my stepmother has been very well looked after. She is incapable of helping herself in anyway but the staff are caring and kind and she does not seem to have deteriorated at all. I am always welcomed when I visit which is rarely and I can see that my step mother is comfortable and happy in her own way. I do not believe I could have found a better home for her to end her days.

Initially arranged as respite with a view to long term care. Welcoming, friendly transfer from ambulance to room, caring staff to both myself and my mother. We were encouraged to make room 'homely' and personal pictures and TV etc. The location is suitable to catch local buses and open visiting hours.

My relative was moved from a local care home into Langdale Nursing Home and it didn't take me long to see the vast improvement that it had on her whole well being. As she suffers from dementia she is unable to voice her own opinions. The staff are always very friendly and helpful and mindful of her needs.

My husband has been in Langdale for respite 5 times. It is very well run. It is peaceful and relaxing. The staff are extremely caring. They welcome him and me when we arrive. The rooms are very very clean. The food is very good. The cleaning ladies and laundry ladies are very friendly.
The social activities are very well organised. The staff are really good. My husband cannot talk and is paralysed. He has 2 carers 4 times a day in our own home and the care in the home leaves a lot to be desired. But at Langdale it is of the highest standard. I cannot fault it.

It is a very traumatic experience to choose a nursing home when your loved one is no longer able to. I was helped along every step of the way and given strength and support from the staff. I know my mother enjoyed her time at Langdale and if she were able to I am sure she would have agreed that I had made the best possible decision. The home is just that 'a home' with warmth and love all around. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

We have only been using respite for my disabled sister for the last year. Previously trying two different placements which weren't a great experience, totally different from the time she has spent at Langdale. She has had a fantastic time well looked after in clean and tidy house she was kept immaculate and had lots of fun. She can't wait to return and would recommend it to friends and family.

My wife who'd become terminally disabled, spent 3 years at Langdale. At the onset and like probably many new clients disinclined to go, she knew it meant leaving her own home and environment for the last time. But she settled in quickly appreciated most of the staff attentions and other clients friendships till the end. I personally found the family run home easy to deal with. I enjoyed visits to see my wife and to appreciate the many interesting social events that they laid on for their clientele. I found standards were very good but not overbearing. Langdale overall was and still is to be recommended as a respectable and appreciable local nursing home.

Mum went into Langdale for a weeks respite care immediately after Christmas 2014. She was very fearful of going into a home after all the publicity two - three years a ago about rougue care home and ill treatment of patients. After her stay at Langdale she is now really looking forward to her next stay there in March 2015. She told us that they treated her wonderfully and that she has a lovely holiday.

Accommodation and care were very good. I am unable to comment on activities as my friend was unfortunately not well enough to participate in many. Similarly I am unable to comment on value as costs were paid by NHS for which I know the family were grateful. Would and indeed have recommended Langdale Nursing Home to a relative-in-law.

The care my father received during his stay at Langdale Nursing Home was very good. The staff looked after him well and had the time to appreciate his sense of humour before his dementia worsened in the latter days. His welfare was my main priority and by and large I was happy with the care he received in the home. I was always briefed by the senior staff of any problems which were always resolved satisfactorily. Outside visits for dads dementia - own well being (new false teeth etc) were undertaken by the home. Dad spent 14 months at Langdale Nursing Home and his final days were made as comfortable as possible.

Langdale is a lovely, caring home. It provides a caring family feel. The nursing care is excellent and residents are loved. The beautiful gardens provide residents with a lovely outdoor space to enjoy many activities, residents can relax in their rooms if they wish and it is wonderful to know that the night staff are so attentive and professional.

My husband had a bad stroke, and the activities are very good for the residents but my husband cannot participate in them. My husband cannot eat and drink as being fed by tube, but the food for the residents is home made even, the cakes. The home is very welcoming any time of the day and the staff are very nice and nothing is too much trouble for them. I would not hesitate to recommend the home to anyone.

My friend Lesley spent the last few weeks of her life in Langdale. I was so pleased that she was in such a safe and caring place. All staff treated her with great dignity but in a very friendly way. I was with her the evening before she died and was so pleased at how pain free she was kept. Could not have asked for more.

My friend Lesley was admitted to Langdale in February 2014 for palliative care, she was treated with the utmost respect and her dignity was never compromised. The staff were wonderful to her and come to ask all the time if they could do anything for her. In her last days they were very caring to Lesley an myself when visiting.
